Doctor Who continues it’s new tradition of creating excellent 2nd halves to sometimes-mediocre two-parters. This one contained the standard season-end ludicrous deus ex (re-booting the whole universe!) but it was done so very well this time even if there was still some cases of just wishing things back into existence (makes a change from out of existence, see Rose Tyler).
Where part one was almost 100% padding this was all go with an excellently woven time-travel story and even a good reason for Rory’s re-existence. I’m glad that they specifically mentioned that they hadn’t worked out yet why the TARDIS had exploded on that date as I was wondering what was going on there. I’m also happy to see Amy and Rory are both still on board.
More fun to come (bring back his ‘daughter’ next season please 🙂 )!
